Tanya WillsTanya Wills is the granddaughter of two opera singers, She knew from the very beginning that she would be an artist. Tanya grew up immersed in music and theatre and began her artistic career as a dancer. With formal training in Dance, she spent many hours in a dance studio accompanying ballet classes on piano. Tanya graduated from Theatre School, where she developed her skills as a ‘triple threat’ with a major focus on voice. She went on to study voice classically in Toronto and developed her distinct mezzo sound and style.

Tanya's rich and expressive voice became her hallmark as she went on to work with many Swing and Big Bands. Known for dynamic performance and great vocal technique, Tanya has also played the iconic lead roles of so many classic Musicals – Eva Peron (Evita), Peter Pan, Adelaide (Guys and Dolls) to name a few.

Tanya is at the front of Toronto's Wintergarten Orchestra. Singing in English, German and French, she delivers exciting Cabaret pieces from the 20‘s and 30’s with a richness of storytelling that sets her apart.

With the TANYA WILLS QUARTET she brings her sensual and evocative sound to the stage with three of her favourite master musicians, Bill Bridges, Jordan Klapman and Ron Johnston. Tanya’s repertoire ranges from European Cabaret to the Great American Songbook to contemporary pieces, including original works.

Tickets are $25 + service charge at Vic Hall Box Office 905-372-2210.

OCTOBER 26 • 7pm

halloween thrillerMultiple National Jazz Award-winning trumpet improviser, Brownman Ali, leads an all-star quartet in his popular annual Halloween Thriller concert. The Cobourg concert is the first in a 6-city tour that includes Markham, Toronto, Hamilton, St. Catherines and Kitchener. The BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO + 1 will perform the entire Michael Jackson "Thriller" recording, interpreted and re-worked in Miles Davis' electric-jazz fashion. Michael Jackson's Thriller is the best selling record album of all time with 66 million sold and 8 Grammy Awards in 1984. In addition performing Thriller top to bottom, other Michael Jackson classics will be featured through the night for this unique Halloween jazz party concert. Costumes and Thriller video dance moves are encouraged. (Note: Eagles Greatest Hits rivals Thriller for top seller of all time).

"Delving so deeply into that record always leaves us speechless", states Ali. "Michael Jackson birthed so many incredible tunes over the years, but his collaborations with Quincy Jones on Thriller has to be one of the most towering musical achievements in pop music ever. Using that brilliant material every year on Halloween, as jump-offs for what we do makes for a party that's danceable, but still rooted in exploratory improvising and deep-reaching solos. We approach it the way Miles Davis might have." The BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO has won 2 National Jazz Awards, 3 Toronto Independent Music Awards for "Jazz Group of the Year", a SOCAN music award, a CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award, and an International Independent Music Award for "2015 Jazz-Funk album of the year" for their latest release "Gravitation", which hit number 4 on the iTunes USA jazz charts upon it's release.
Brownman's ensembles have already played 9 concerts in Cobourg so far this year, all at The Loft up until now. Brownman loves Cobourg. This "Thriller" concert is at Cobourg Collegiate Institute's sensational GREAT HALL.

Tickets are $20 + service charge at Vic Hall Box Office 905-372-2210.
